Key to Affirmations by Celeste Cooper

"Defeat is a possibility of try, but to quit scars the soul." 
Broken Body Wounded Spirit: Balancing the See Saw of Chronic Pain, Fall Devotions


What can affirmations do for us?

  • They center us.
  • They keep us focused.
  • They empower us.
  • They provide us beauty
  • They supply us with worth.
  • They present us with purpose
  • They release us
  • They purify us

Clues for writing and using affirmations:

  • Keep them short and easy to remember
  • Keep your favorite affirmations written where you can see them frequently
  • Personalize them with words such as, I, my, me
  • Make the positive with words like, will, can, do, smile, thank. forgive
  • Put motion to them with verbs, create, give, follow, endeavor, try
  • Commit yourself to one affirmation at a time

Also see "Journaling"


Examples of affirmations:

  • I have no duty to be perfect
  • I always have options
  • I am not my mistakes
  • This is a learning experience

Some of my own personal affirmations:

  • “I may be a warped mass, but when you place me at the top of a sleep grade and give me a swift kick, I can turn into a ball of unknown power.”
  • “I am sick, I am sexy, I am sixty-ish, I am a scud missile, don't mess with me.”
  • “I may wear out, but I won’t break down.”
  • “As I walk this path, I understand the privilege of intersections, these interruptions enrich my life.”
  • “Words impact me; I will choose well and use them as my voice for the benefit of others.”

Tip!   Write or read and affirmation four times a day, EVERY DAY. Put it on your mirror or your desktop.

“Affirmations create positive awareness and crowd out negative mind clutter.”
